I've now watched Jim Sorgi work as the starting quarterback in three preseason games. Three games in which he has had the opportunity to work with many of the players Peyton Manning teams up with. And the same question keeps going through my mind: is he really the heir apparent to Peyton?
Let's face it, the Colts need to start thinking long and hard about life after Peyton. He has been playing for 11 years and unlike a certain QB in Green Bay... I mean New York, I don't see the master-of-all commercials playing for 17+ years. My bet is that Peyton will another 4 or 4 years and then hang it up for a spot behind the anchor desk at CBS, NBC, ESPN or whoever.
So now that the Colts have had an opportunity to watch Sorgi play with the first team offense for an extended period of time maybe they have the information they need to make a decision on Sorgi's long-term potential. But if it was me, I would be paying real close attention to the college game this season.
